Maci Elizabeth's Baptism was today at our church, St. Andrew's United Methodist. She wore the same christening gown that Avery wore at her baptism. It was a really nice service and Maci was very happy. She didn't even seem to mind when the pastor put the water on head.

We served lunch at our house after the service.

First Day of School!

Matthew & Avery dressed for school!

Matthew & his Pre-K teacher, Mrs. Brewer!

Avery & her 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Cox!

Avery & Matthew began their first day at Wayland Bonds Elementary School on Tuesday, August 14th! They were both sooo excited!

Matthew drew a picture of himself at his new school and got to ride scooters and play in the loft that is built into his room.

Avery is learning about the Five Senses with watermelons! She will have a Watermelon Feast on Friday. She guessed that the watermelon had 2,000 seeds.

They both had a wonderful first day and couldn't wait to go back the next day.

Avery also began gymnastics at the Little Gym on Tuesday evening and really enjoyed it.

Matthew had his Karate class at the Little Gym on Wednesday afternoon and looked so sweet in his karate uniform. I will post pics of that later.

Thursday, August 16th

I walked the kids into school this morning and dropped Matthew off at his class and then walked Avery down to her hall. I kissed her on the cheek and she wiped it off! My baby is already too grown up for mom to kiss her in public. Tomorrow I am letting her walk down to her class by herself....time to loosen the apron strings!

Matthew's teacher called this morning about 10:30 and said Matthew's tummy hurt and he was upset. I went to school and picked him up and asked him if he was sick and he replied "No, I'm just hungry!". They hadn't had snack yet and so I took him home and he ate cheddar bunnies! All in a day's fun!

Summer Daze

The kids love to play with the dogs and of course the dogs love the kids!

Maci went to the dr. and had to get her shots! It was so sad! She cried, but was soon comforted by mommy. Avery volunteered to take the shots for Maci! Thought that was so sweet. She weighed 12lbs 8oz and is 23 1/4 inches long. 75% for weight and 50% for height. Our little chunky monkey! Mommy makes rich milk! =)

Matthew got a bike! It is actually too big for him, but he rides it a little bit and then trades with Avery. He will grow into it soon. He was so excited that we were able to find a yellow bike. That is his favorite color. The kids and I have been going on nightly bike rides/walks. If we haven't left the house by 8pm, Maci starts fussing. She loves to be put in the stroller for her walk.
